Mom's Birthday Card

Evening all!
Thought I would use the color inspiration for the latest Play Date Cafe Challenge to make a card for my Mom's upcoming birthday. I used this week's  Crazy 4 Challenges sketch for inspiration.
I wanted to use the fantastic DP from Basic Grey (Wassail Sleigh Ride) - it looks like toile and the color is perfect for the challenge.

The red, scalloped cardstock was stamped in text with Spring rain for a subtle look, however, it didn't translate in the photo... boo.... Looks much better IRL. The flower is made of tissue paper that was inked with colorbox pigment ink.

This card also applies for the following challenges;
Gingersnap Creations - Celebrate
La La Land Crafts Challenge - Make your own flowers
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Another birthday challenge
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Make something for someone special
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Flower power

I'll be back tomorrow night with another card, this time for the latest PIO challenge, among others :) Thanks so much for stopping by!
